79 Chief Build

I've been working on this baby for a while. Picked her up in October, 2018. Body work took most of my time. She is now making a turn for the better. I will I have more photos to add to the link below. I'll update the post once that is complete. Enjoy for now!

I updated some photos and added a video of the motor when we ran it through.



I hope everyone enjoys.



Next we are mocking her up before a few pieces go off to powder coating.

I have both grills. I’m not sure which way to go. My grandfathers chief was a 77 and is my inspiration, but this a 79!!

Nice work-I love the WT Cherokees. How hard was it to repair the roof and did you use all metal to patch it?
